All She Needs
The tears finally dried
Leaving her face empty of any emotion.
X
She decided the time for crying was done
It was time to move on
X
She swore he was her everything
That he would hold her to the end
X
Well she’d lied to herself
And now she knew it
X
He was her nothing
He just tied her down
X
He made her change
She wasn’t who she was
X
This wasn’t her
It was who he wanted her to be
X
And that wasn’t right
She didn’t deserve that
X
And when she told him this
He said he didn’t care
X
That it wasn’t up to her
And that’s when she saw him for he really was
X
He wasn’t worth her pain
Or her tears
X
He wasn’t worth anything
Not the love she felt for him
X
Not the pain she felt with him
Not the time she dedicated to him
X
He was nothing
She was everything
X
She had thought about their end many times
Wondering if it was the right thing to do
X
But the more she thought
The more she knew she was right
X
And that’s what stopped the tears
And the sobs
X
Because he wasn’t worth crying over
He wasn’t worth her sadness
X
She was better off now
Being with the people who truly loved her
X
She could hold her head up high
Because she didn’t care what he thought of her
X
She was her own person
Not his
X
Not anyone else’s
Just herself
X
And that
That’s all she needs
